The PCI Express Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium employs a powerful audio-processing engine.

Positional 3-D Audio
With X-Fi CMSS-3D technology, the X-Fi Titanium delivers outstanding surround sound whether you're using headphones or speakers. When used with a regular pair of stereo headphones, X-Fi CMSS-3D creates nine virtual speakers for exceptional surround effects, letting you feel like you're sitting in the best seat of a movie theater. You'll get an advantage in games, too, with the ability to locate enemies by sound before they see you.
And with multichannel speakers, you'll be able to hear exactly where the audio cues are--even between speakers. Voices will be right in front of you and ambient sound will surround you, just like a live performance. CMSS-3D works with both desktop stereo speakers and full surround speaker systems.
X-Fi Crystalizer Restores Lost Details
Recover lost detail with X-Fi Crystalizer technology. This technology restores the audio detail that is lost in compressed audio files so you'll regain vibrancy and clarity in your music and movies. Highs and lows that were lost are enhanced, so whether you're listening to cymbal crashes or wailing guitars, you'll hear the music as it was meant to be heard.
High-Quality Voice Chat
